I have my samsung 840 evo in the cage, the sata and power cables hold it still. No issue with wiggling at all. If you could possibly add 2mm to it in some way that would also solve any wiggle problem you may have.

Just saying, a single drive screw you already have, vs a few bucks for an adaptor plate is cheaper and easier if you want to use the Corsair cage...

There is no reason to not let it dangle it is an ssd. Not gonna move that 2mm unless you shake the case and even then it won't matter.


In other news I should have my case mod done tonight. Nothing big, just gotta move my ut60 up top a few mm to account for the bigger vrm heat sink of the x79 dark.


Crazy close. If I would have had to move it any further it would have required a whole new top panel. Success is mine! Muahahahah

I've got my Sammy 840 Pro in the ssd cage no problem, maybe wanna check how your installing it. Take out the cage and install the SSD and see if that helps because you do have to somewhat align the ssd in the cage for it to properly grab the ssd.

Do you adjust the fan speed switches often? If not, I would reroute them through a rubber grommet into the back of the case. I'm really CDO (OCD in the correct alphabetical order) about wires hanging out like that. Its just my preference though, nothing to worry about if you don't mind. smile.gif

Alright guys, I did it- I bought a Black 540 ;)

 

Now, the most nerve racking part - pickout out fans that look good and are quiet. I've spent the last 3 days reading about all the fan choices, but am still no where closer to making a selection.

 

FWIW, the "front runner" of my choices is the Silverstone AP121 with Red LEDs.

Since quiet seems to be your primary concern, I recommend checking out MartinsLiquidLabs.

They have some great charts to compare many fans using their own equipment to measure airflow and noise. Then even have some youTube videos you can play so you can actually hear the noise some of the fans produce.

Keep in mind this site is more focused on water cooling than air cooling, so all the fans tested are high static pressure fans that can be used with radiators, so you may not find your fans listed, but it's still a ton of valuable information. Use the Fans dropdown on the navigation toolbar to see some of their other reviews. Search youTube to find the videos. Many of them are linked on their website, but there are more on their youTube channel that may not be on their website.
